Activities on the dayInternational campaign marking the return of Griffon Vulture in the Balkan and Pirin Mnts of Bulgaria. During a press-conference held on Aug 25th in the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency we announced the start of a large-scale campaign for celebrating a huge success – the return of Griffon Vulture to the Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria, Kresna and the Pirin Mountains. This international nature conservation success is a result of over 15 years of joint efforts of Green Balkans, the Fund for Wild Flora and Fauna (FWFF) and the Birds of Prey Protection Society (BPPS). The Bulgarian conservationalists will celebrate the event with an international campaign, naming the newly fledged vultures after experts from 8 European countries and awarding the ambassadors of 4 countries with honour certificates. Honour certificates will also be awarded to the ambassadors of Spain, Austria, Germany and the European Union, for the contribution of their respected states to the restoration of the species in Bulgaria.
